"In the 1840s, a ship’s boy cast ashore in northern Australia is taken in by the Indigenous people. Sixteen years later he steps out of the bush and inadvertently confronts the new white settlers with their unspoken terrors.

The story of a boy caught between two worlds, Remembering Babylon is a picture of Australia at the time of its foundation, focused on the hostility between early British settlers and native Aboriginal people.

‘Australia’s finest writer’ Miriam Cosic, The Australian

‘ ... a deft and economical evocation of an entire nascent society, punctuated by moments of dazzling, revelatory language and unforgettable images.’ Independent on Sunday"
